Strategy

Although these enemies aren't very powerful, they can cause significant damage to a new character, especially when attacking in pairs. Once you have a little experience, use them to practice your Parry and Riposte and backstab timing. Note that they also have a habit of throwing Fire Bombs and can heal themselves with Moon Grass. In 1-3, if you stay too close they will break your guard with a kick and then attempt to deal a heavy blow.
